I watched two of the grandsons this morning while my daughter volunteered in big brother's kindergarten classroom. We started out the morning by playing Alphabet Search. Robby scattered the alphabet disks all around the house. Then he would reach into a mug, pull out a popsicle stick with a letter printed on it, and off we would go in search of the letter. Once we found matching disks and popsicle sticks, we would think of words that started with that sound.
Then we built with Duplos. Little brother Ollie is beginning to enjoy this process too. We built the Observation Tower for the airport. Ollie played with wheeled vehicles and built towers.
Soon it was time for morning snack - strawberries, toast with jam, and milk.
After that we read books. Most of the books were packed in a bag ready to return to the libraary. Robby pulled out a favorite, Wee Hee Hee: A Collection of Pretty Funny Jokes and Pictures. I was amazed that he knew the answers to most of the jokes. His favorite one: "Why was the skeleton afraid to cross the road? He didn't have the guts." Check out the size of this book.
Our final activity of the morning, suggested by little brother Ollie, was playing with play dough. Before we knew it, Mom was home and it was time to go to the library. And we did all that in just two hours.
